In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the pancake mix and the water to form a batter. Lumps are ok.
Add the maple flavored emulsion and whisk just until combined.
Add the sausage to the mixing, stirring just until incorporated.
Lightly spray a 12 count muffin tin with non stick cooking spray.
Fill each well 3/4 of the way with the batter.
Bake the pancake muffins at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
Let the muffins rest and cool slightly before popping them out of the muffin tin.
Serve the muffins warm with syrup for dipping.
